Description

North Pearl Street between Eighth and Sixth Streets was commonly known as "the heights." From the south side of the business district to Eighth Street there was a steady rise in elevation which gave the appearances of a hill on the north side of the city. The beautiful large George E. Dickson home on right was one of the architectural gems of this residential area. In-town irrigation, cement sidewalks and street lights revealed Ellensburg's modern and progressive nature during the first quarter of the 20th century. In the center of the photograph can be seen the two towers of the Davidson and Kreidel Buildings. On the west side of the street beyond the Dickson house is the roof line of the Antlers Hotel. This hotel built in 1890 and originally called the Horton Hotel was one of the most elegant hotels in eastern Washington.Postcard titled: "No. 37 Pearl Street From Heights Ellensburg, Wash."
